[Equipment] Oximeter
#1
Wink 
I have purchased a Resmed S9 autoset without a humidifer and use a simplus full face mask. Now apparently the S9 has a oximeter adapter which I can purchase through the local CPAP direct store on the sunshine coast of Queensland Australia for about $80. I have been told that the resmed oximeter cost is about $800 . I have been told that I can connect a Nonin Xpod oximeter to this adapter so I can record the oxygen levels onto the data card I use for Therapy compliance. Can anyone confirm this or if not suggest a different approach. I would like to record data to the S9 because that way the info is all in one spot. I use Rescan software. Thank you.

Thanks

Hi Gavgaffa,
I have been doing a good bit of research on oximeters recently, and your information agrees with what I have found, other than cost. Here in the US, the ResMed oximeter adapter is said to sell for about $400 (if you can find it), and the Nonin Xpod pushes the price well up over $1000. At that rate, most folk look for another path. I am currently looking at the "Overnight Oximeters" at Supplier #19. Some of these are compatible with Sleepyhead, although the data is not directly on the SD card: other procedures are used for transferring the data into Sleepyhead.

Good Luck with the oximeter, and with your therapy. Let us know how it works out.

If they are really offering the Resmed oximeter for $80 I would be afraid to touch it for fear of burning my hands on a hot (stolen) item. I bought a CMS 50i from supplier 19. Only problem is Sleepyhead doesn't know how to read its format yet, but it comes with adequate software.
